McCoist vows to be ready for new season

Wed, 06 Jun 09:46:11 2012

Manager Ally McCoist insists Rangers will be ready for the new season - despite still not knowing what division they will be playing in or what players he will have at his disposal.

The Glasgow giants are hoping potential new owner Charles Green and his consortium are able to secure a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) which will allow the club to exit administration and avoid a newco scenario, which could place a question mark over their status in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The Ibrox boss has so far been unable to offer new deals to those now out of contract while the club continues their battle with the Scottish Football Association over a 12-month transfer embargo. Looking ahead to the new campaign, McCoist told the Daily Record: "It is worrying. I won't lie. I have huge concerns about what is going to happen."

He added: "I don't know who will still be there by the time we go back. Some of the lads might have moved on.

"I don't know if I will be able to sign anyone because the situation with the transfer embargo is still up in the air.

"I don't know if we will still be in administration. We could have exited through the CVA that Charles Green has launched or we could be newco. If that's the case, I don't even know for sure which division we'll be playing in.

"I am in the dark about so many issues but I can't and won't let it affect my desire for Rangers to be successful. I do know there will be a Rangers and we will be ready for the start of the season."

Players, such as Sone Aluko, Andy Little and David Healy, saw their contracts expire at the end of the season.

McCoist added: "At the moment I can't make them offers. That makes me feel helpless to a certain extent.

"These boys deserve contracts and I want to give them something but right now I have not been given the go-ahead to do so. As soon as I am in the position to do that, I will. But I am well aware it could be too late."

  16. Well at least they only need to train part time as life­ in the 3rd division is not that demanding (no­ disrespect to div 3). Couple of nights training at­ Bellahouston Park would suffice I think but they had­ best watch oot for the parky as we know they wid try an­ sneak in an oot without paying here also. Hail hail ! !­ !
